Money Box

To create this money box I have used Stamps: Pink Gem Designs Apple Mimi.  Card stock: White hammered.  Papers: DP My Mind's Eye Spring.  Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black.  Colouring: Copic markers.  Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils.  Orange Fine Liner.  Dies: Sizzix Tim Holtz Alteration Ornate.  Punches: X-Cut Botanical Emboss Leaves.  Ribbon punch.  Embellishments: Orange ribbon.  Mini brads.  Copper glitter.

Hints and Tips
The brads on the coat where too small to cover the button image so I coloured it underneath before adding the brad to make it less noticeable.

This box was entered into the following challenges:
Moving Along With the Times:  Challenge #67 'Anything but a Card'.
Charimsa Cardz Challenges: Challenge #40 Autumn Colours.
Cute Card Thursday:  Challenge #133 Make Your Own!
